I finally made it to Harry's U Pull It in Hazelton PA. Low cost rentals of engine cranes and wagons for your bigger jobs.

Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade - Nissan/Infiniti

Scorpios usually don't have a problem with flickering lights, especially in the instrument cluster. Good to hear the Titan is working well for you.
Any chance you'll make it to Carlisle this year?

Re: Car Show Season

Small world...

Ask him to please check with his Parts Manager or another old time employee if the dealership might have any Merkur parts collecting dust.

My favorite local parts manager [since retired] from local dealership would find OEM parts in some of those "once-upon-a-time Merkur" dealerships.

Request for Merkur emblem

The "membership" link to the club received a request for the Merkur emblem that is on the front of a Scorpio. Yes, it could be spam, but in the event it's real, it would be kind of someone to send him one. If anyone sends him one, please post on this forum, so this unfortunate soul isn't swamped wit...
